The Compleat Werewolf and Other Stories of Fantasy and Science Fiction

Masters of Horror: Book 1

Anthony Boucher

For his characters alone in this book, Anthony Boucher deserves awards. They are other-worldly (a ghost who gets killed--?); an air-breathing squid-like Martian who is a brilliant bartender of mixes for two humans who revolutionize the use of robotics and androids; some mummified creatures who have a cannibalistic way of coming alive when unexpected; a Lilliputian demon who can't manage the simplest of tasks when asked; and of course, the title player, a college professor-turned-werewolf for love. Not enough? How about a murder that costs the killer more than his life by summoning a creature from his own imagination? Just ask Gorgo, Dugg Quinby, Wolfe Wolf, Guzub, and Snulbug (but don't ask the latter for tomorrow's newspaper. He might bring it and a lot of surprises too.)

Seeds of Evil

Masters of Horror: Book 3

Margaret Bingley

Meg's odd-looking, white-haired twins, conceived by artificial insemination, behave like adults when they are four years old. They are strangely anti-social and derive satisfaction and "tingles" from disasters (especially bloody ones) that befall others...

Songs of a Dead Dreamer

Masters of Horror: Book 4

Thomas Ligotti

Songs of a Dreamer was Thomas Ligotti's first collection of supernatural horror stories. When originally published in 1985 by Harry Morris's Silver Scarab Press, the book was hardly noticed. In 1989, an expanded version appeared that garnered accolades from several quarters. Writing in the Washington Post, the celebrated science fiction and fantasy author Michael Swanwick extolled: "Put this volume on the shelf right between H. P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe. Where it belongs."

The Watchers Out of Time

Masters of Horror: Book 5

H. P. Lovecraft
August Derleth

Venture at your own risk into a realm where the sun sinks into oblivion -- and all that is unholy, unearthly, and unspeakable rises. These rare, hard-to-find collaborations of cosmic terror are back in print, including:

  • Wentworth's Day - A fellow figures his debt to a dead man is null and void, until he discovers just how terrifying interest rates can be.
  • The Shuttered Room - A sophisticated gentleman must settle his grandfather's estate, only to find that the house shelters dark secrets.
  • The Dark Brotherhood - A beautiful woman and her companion meet the likes of Edgar Allan Poe, in a tale as terrifying as anything Poe himself ever created.
  • Innsmouth Clay - A sculptor returns from Paris to create a statue not entirely of this world -- and not at all under his control.
  • Witches' Hollow - A new schoolteacher puts his soul in peril while trying to save one of his students from a ravenous creature.
